2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a light brown with a bit of white head that dissipates quickly. Smell is fairly sweet, with a bit of fresh fruit, like apples and raspberry, and a bit of citrus, quite refreshing. Palate is light bodied with aggressive but short lasting carbonation. Taste is sweet at first, then gets a bit of a bitter hop kick, then goes quickly to nothing, with no real aftertaste to speak of. Kind of boring, but the smell is decently interesting. Probably best served quite cold on a patio.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 mL bottle. Hazy burnished copper with a thin cap of white. Aromas of toasty malt, mild toffee, apple, grassy hops. Mild sweetness up front but decidedly dry throughout. A hint of roast and hop bitterness on the back end. Light bodied and quenching. Moderate carbonation. Well made but not memorable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Enjoyed at the brewpub (last visit, they were sold out). Arrived with a small bubbly head, and settled into a thin layer. Not much carbonation. Had a hazy, coppery appearance. Not much of a distinct aroma, maybe a bit of vanilla, wheats and grains. Taste is of roasted malts, spices, hints of lemon and tropical fruits. Slight watery mouthfeel. Not too bad.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle: Poured a light golden/amber color ale with a small foamy head with light retention and not much lacing. Aroma of unrefined grainy notes which is not the most enticing. Taste is also dominated by off unrefined grainy notes with weird vegetable aftertaste. Body is about average for style with medium carbonation. Something appears to be off here.

tap on the premises. clear golden orange - not remotely close to a red, with a small white cap, little retention and lacing. caramel and butter - sweetish honeyed very lightly toasted maltiness - barley sugar, earthy and grassy, chalk, underlying fruity notes. average carbonation, light body - almost watery, bland herbal-grassy finish. blah.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pretty boring red lager. Average carbonation. Pours reddish clear amber. Finishes a little sweet with some off-tasting sourness - even the gold is better than this. Doesn’t come together well. Tap at brewpub.

Clear amber pour with a busy white head. Head faded while I was opening up ratebeer to rate this. Unique earthy smell. Smells ’healthy’ for some reason. Grains, malts. Interesting that odd taste carries into the mouth. A very unique taste. I wonder if it’s the Big Rig hops. I have one more to try from them and I must remember to compare the two. Somewhat rich and thick tasting which is surprising given the look of the beer. Very clean finish. Really liked this.
